faerie seasons

here’s some fun stuff. i was commissioned to draw four simple faerie illustrations, each depicting one of our seasons (if you live on planet earth).  i think they came out alright! it was fun giving each one it’s own unique color scheme.





most of my time right now is spent working on my second parable story (the first one you can read this fall when volume one comes out in december!), but i still have an inbox full of commissions i’m trying to get to.  i’ll do my best to post some of my favorites as i draw them so this blog doesn’t become a ghost town. or ghost blog. spooky.

    Summer came out plenty saucy but I have to say Autumn is my favorite. Well done Mike! :)

    To add to Jeremy’s comment. I was thinking how amazing the set would be in a little girls room. beautiful!!!!! I love them to pieces. I think spring is my favorite because it is my favorite season.

    These rock! Winter and fall are my favorites, but probably because those are my favorite seasons. Are you doing mermaids through the seasons too? I’m thinking they don’t care for winter too much.

    bryan- unless they are POLAR mermaids!

    yeah, you’re probably right.
